The fabulous "Rock for Life" show. Been a long time since I've given this show a spin.

They went out on a high note, at least.

2/17/79 has a lot of songs that were rare at the time:
Greatest Story - first one since 10/18/74
Big Railroad Blues - first since 10/19/74
High Time - first since 5/26/77
The Wheel - first since 2/3/78 (and the only one in '79)
Might As Well - had just been revived a week earlier (second one since 11/2/77)
They'd also just started doing Don't Ease Me In again, which hadn't been played since 8/6/74.
And naturally, it also has the LAST From The Heart Of Me!

Thanks for bringing this up today. It's a terrific show. Speaking as a total non-Donna fan (ocassional hater), it is impossible not to be moved by this version of From The Heart of Me.

Sounds like the sextet here is actually a quintet with a back-up vocalist.

I don't believe Jerry ever got over this Greek tragedy after so many strong years in the 70's.

Fortunately, Weir recommended a more than competent keyboardist and by 1981 Jerry and Brent trusted each others musical instinct's.

The 80's are an important weave in the overall tapestry of this musical genius/legend.

God blessed the Grateful Dead in the 1980's, we'd go back there in a heartbeat if i could only find a way. In the meantime, "stream a little dream of we" until your hearts content.
